Did you know I am a Craftsy Affiliate? So I get to inform you of all the great things that go on over there like Free Mini Courses. Who doesn't like free? They also offer longer courses for a fee.
Here are a couple of the Craftsy mini-courses I have watched so far:
This short course run by Deborah Robson teaches you all you need to know about the different wools and how to use them. It will enable you to make more informed decisions on what fiber to use for what project. This will come in handy when you are yarn shopping and hopefully you won't come home with the wrong yarn for your project.
I wish I had of found this course earlier. And if this is what they offer for free (86 minutes of educational video) You can imagine how much work goes into the course you pay for. But hey don't take my word for it. This one is a FREE course. So you have no reason not to go and have a look for yourself. Take the time out to learn something new.
This was actually one of the first courses I watched through Craftsy when I was just learning how to use my sewing machine. I definitely recommend this one. Did you know you can sew fabric and crochet/knit fabric together? So a sewing machine can come in handy for lots of crochet projects. So far I have used mine when I lined my Crochet Fat Bag, a dress for my daughter and another lining for a bag. Who wants to be stuck hand sewing a lining into a bag when you can pull out that old sewing machine (or borrow you mothers/grandmothers), dust it off and learn how to use and maintain it.
